ASDWA PFAS – Source Water Protection Guide and Toolkit

ASDWA developed this guide and toolkit with support from a Project Advisory Council (PAC) with representatives from nine states (Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin), and the Cadmus Group. The purpose of the guide is to demonstrate and share effective strategies for addressing PFAS contamination risk in source waters that will help inform policy decisions, assist state drinking water programs in protecting public health, and encourage collaboration and communication among states and water utilities.

The Association of State Drinking Water Administrators (ASDWA) is the professional Association serving state drinking water programs. Formed in 1984 to address a growing need for state administrators to have national representation, ASDWA has become a respected voice for state primacy agents with Congress, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and other professional organizations.

Elevating Drinking Water as a National Priority

One of the most important roles ASDWA has is to make sure no one stops thinking about water. Whether that means spending time on the Hill to speak with Congressional staff about drinking water issues, or expanding the reach of our communications to the public by way of social media, ASDWA is constantly working to advance our message of public health protection on behalf of our members. Having safe drinking water is taken for granted by many, so ASDWA continually emphasizes drinking water’s importance for public health and for the economy.
